Order of the Arrow


For over 100 years, the Order of the Arrow (OA) has recognized Scouts and Scouters who best exemplify the Scout Oath and Law in their daily lives. This recognition provides encouragement for others to live these ideals as well. Arrowmen are known for maintaining camping traditions and spirit, promoting year-round and long term resident camping, and providing cheerful service to others. OA service, activities, adventures, and training for youth and adults are models of quality leadership development and programming that enrich and help to extend Scouting to America's youth.

Each Scout council has an OA Lodge that delivers on the mission. Our new council has two lodges from each of the previous councils through 2022. Watonala Lodge and Chicksa Lodge are merging into a single lodge in 2023 and have chosen a new lodge name, Ofi’ Tohbi.

The new lodge name comes from the migration story of the Chickasaw Nation.
